The American Israel Public Affairs Committee on Thursday praised the Obama administration’s strong support for Israel’s self-defense, as well as the strong support members of Congress from both parties have given Israel amid the Gaza fighting.

“These statements demonstrate  that America continues to firmly stand with Israel and her right to defend herself,” AIPAC said in a statement of its own Thursday. The group particularly underscored US funding for the Iron Dome short-range missile defense systems which has thwarted over 130 recent rocket attacks since the start of Operation Pillar of Defense.

Terrorists in Gaza have fired over 300 rockets at the South in the past two days.
